i am having a problem to connect now with wireless to the network with this name Cell 05 - Address: 00:05:59:06:AD:07
Code:

tux ~ # wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Trying to associate with 00:05:59:06:ad:07 (SSID='NetFasteR IAD(PSTN)' freq=2437 MHz)
Associated with 00:05:59:06:ad:07
WPA: Key negotiation completed with 00:05:59:06:ad:07 [PTK=CCMP GTK=TKIP]
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:05:59:06:ad:07 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=]


My configs are
Code:


   File: /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf                                                                                         

# The below line not be changed otherwise we refuse to work
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

# Ensure that only root can read the WPA configuration
ctrl_interface_group=0

# Let wpa_supplicant take care of scanning and AP selection
ap_scan=1

# Simple case: WPA-PSK, PSK as an ASCII passphrase, allow all valid ciphers
network={
  ssid="NetFasteR IAD(PSTN)"
  group=TKIP
  psk="awesomepassword" #Moderator Edit: I removed his real password from post --cach0rr0
  # The higher the priority the sooner we are matched
  priority=5
}


Code:

File: /etc/conf.d/net                                                                                               

# This blank configuration will automatically use DHCP for any net.*
# scripts in /etc/init.d.  To create a more complete configuration,
# please review /etc/conf.d/net.example and save your configuration
# in /etc/conf.d/net (this file :]!).
config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )

# It's important that we tell wpa_supplicant which driver we should
# be using as it's not very good at guessing yet
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"
config_wlan0=( "dhcp" )



I know i am missing a lot of things but lets hope i will get better b time in gentoo and linux :roll:

hi

Code:

PA: Key negotiation completed with 00:05:59:06:ad:07 [PTK=CCMP GTK=TKIP]
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:05:59:06:ad:07 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=]


This looks good! It means that wpa_supplicant was able to connect to the AP, and also authenticate

however, running wpa_supplicant manually does *not* fire off a DHCP request

so with wpa_supplicant still running, try dhcpcd wlan0, and see if it is able to get you an IP

If so, we know that you have all the needed packages, all the needed kernel settings, everything else is just configuring /etc/conf.d/net

You are almost there :P

I don't see any bugs or misconfiguration inside your wpa_supplicant.conf

Can you post this :

OO yes now it works i did execute.

Code:

tux ~ # dhcpcd wlan0
dhcpcd[4629]: version 5.2.10 starting
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: waiting for carrier
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: carrier acquired
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: broadcasting for a lease
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: offered 192.168.2.12 from 192.168.2.5
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: acknowledged 192.168.2.12 from 192.168.2.5
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: checking for 192.168.2.12
dhcpcd[4629]: wlan0: leased 192.168.2.12 for 172800 seconds
dhcpcd[4629]: forked to background, child pid 4672
tux ~ # 


while at another terminal at the same time this was executed :D.

Code:
wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Trying to associate with 00:05:59:06:ad:07 (SSID='NetFasteR IAD(PSTN)' freq=2437 MHz)
Associated with 00:05:59:06:ad:07
WPA: Key negotiation completed with 00:05:59:06:ad:07 [PTK=CCMP GTK=TKIP]
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:05:59:06:ad:07 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=]


Then i unplugged the network cable and it works. All i would like to know can i make this with a script run every time or i just have to add it at rc and is there any gui that works like other linux distros have. like Ubuntu or fedora since i take my laptop a lot with me so configurating wlan every time it would take me time.I have learned a lot from friday about linux and i still have to learn and do a install from beggining with a new x9000 cpu when i will get in 2 weeks or so.

Thanks a lot :P

Make just that you run that command to add the dhcpcd service :

Code:

# rc-update add dhcpcd default

If you are not near your AP, the wpa_supplicant may hang during the boot process.

i would normally suggest using a graphical tool such as wicd (very small, light, lean, but straightforward, and no need to edit conf files)

however manual configuration, if you want to start this via an init script (similar to how net.eth0 is started), you can change things around in /etc/conf.d/net, then create a symlink '/etc/init.d/net.wlan0' which points at '/etc/init.d/net.lo'

...sorry, it's early, I'm being confusing because I'm not fully awake. Bsaically

Code:

cd /etc/init.d
ln -s net.lo net.wlan0


that creates the startup script. Then edit /etc/conf.d/net and provide the settings for wpa_supplicant.
